What made you decide to become a writer?
It was either write or go mad from the stories swirling around in my head. LOL
Why are you attracted to the Regency period?
Before I was a writer, I read in a lot of genres but what I liked about the regency era novels was they were the ones that made me laugh out loud. It’s fun to write around the rules of what was considered proper 19th century behavior and see how far you can bend them.
Do you write when the muse strikes you or do you write every day? Do you have a target?
Writing is my full time job, but much as I’d like to write new words every day there is editing, blurbs, promotional posts to write too. When I am writing a first draft of a story my goal is usually 3,000 words per day or better five days a week. Don’t always get there
Can you sum up the plot of your book in a tweet sized sentence?
Oliver Randall, an eccentric man who spent a decade in captivity, is determined to make the rest of his life an adventure he’ll never forget
What will you do next?
What’s next: A novella, the first in the Miss Mayhem Series, Miss Watson’s First Scandal is coming very soon. A sweeter regency romance than I usually write and set on the Brighton seashore.
